Teh Squeaky Wheel
McCain isnt running again, is he?
Only got about 30 minutes into this version of La Traviata at work yesterday, but liking it so far.
G’day, GN and hai, Sven!
Excellent thread pic, Mac…seeing as how coffee’s essential for life as we know it.
Good on ya for giving La Traviata a go; hope you have better success than I re developing an appreciation of opera.
Seems that Il Douchey’s cunning plan to oust Bibi didn’t work out so well. Good! More fail , please.
Happy Tuesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Sven and Fatwa!
I’ve only listened to a few operas that I’ve enjoyed -- admittedly, I haven’t listened to many operas -- but sub- or super-titles are an absolute must for me. Without them it’s like going to see some popular musical only to find that it’s being performed in another language and you have no idea what the story line is.
To support your assertion:
Wonder if the wedding scene was disrupted by Chinese from Nanking instead of Russians?
When the glass is crushed, do they hell, ‘Bonzai!’?
Was the name of the show changed to “Kokyūer On The Roof”?
While the music was a bit off-putting, I thought the wire work in the fight scenes was amazing!
Huh. So this is what you guys do all day.
I’m really hating the month of March. It started with a 10-day headache that vacillated between annoying and debilitating. Then I had to get some dental work and some of my teeth that the dentist didnt work on were so painful that I barely ate or slept for 5 days afterwards. Oh yeah, then there was the brouhaha at work and this morning on my way in, I’m stopped at a red light and get rear ended. No real damage to the truck, but my back is messed up.
Stay away from me, like really far away. There’s a bullseye on my back.
I’m sorry to hear this, Sven. I hope your back is not badly screwed up and feels better soon.
I think you are taking more than your share of bad luck. Put some back for others!
